    Ordered some Canyon/SRAM core bibs, which I assume are the womens ones, but they don't say "womens" unlike every single other pair of womens shorts. The mens Canyon/SRAM ones say "mens" but I have a sneaky feeling I am going to end up with mens. FFS.

    This is quite soon, then.

    I'm off to Paris a week today, staying in Saint Quentin on the Friday and Saturday nights (stupidly booked this when we thought the start was the same as 2015, but then they changed it and we didn't get our arses in gear enough to book somewhere closer to Rambouillet).

    I'm feeling alright about everything, I think. It feels like A Big Deal which is quite unlike all the other audaxes I've done. Not worried about the riding bit of it; I know I can do that. It's wasting time at controls / eating enough / sleeping which is making me nervous.

    I've ended up getting cover with Just Travel Cover - you have to pick option C under hazardous activities (a friend phoned to check) and it was just over £11 for a week's cover for me.

    I am currently looking into this.

    Snowcard currently looks like the front runner, about £30 with their "adventure plus" cover. I emailed asking if they covered PBP and they confirmed they would.

    I tried an insurance broker earlier today but the quote they've given me is spendy. Gonna try a couple of other places tomorrow as well.

    I have tried to search the thread about this with little luck.

    Lightwight sleeping matts? Alpkit Numo vs Decathlon's Forclaz Trek (the short one). Alpkit is more ££ but full length, but I am a short person so... Any others to consider?
